Robinson Morales, 45, of Boston, Mass., died unexpectedly on October 7, 2016.
He was born on April 22, 1971, in Newark, N.Y., the son of Julia (Raul I.)

He was a singer/song writer who rarely went anywhere without his guitar, but his greatest love was his children. Robinson was a devoted and loving father. He loved spending time with his children, playing and laughing, playing catch, and making music. He was a fun-loving, comical guy who never hesitated to be himself.
